Title: Purification of HgI.sub.2 for nuclear detector fabrication

Abstract

A process for purification of mercuric iodide (HgI.sub.2) to be used as a source material for the growth of detector quality crystals. The high purity HgI.sub.2 raw material is produced by a combination of three stages: synthesis of HgI.sub.2 from Hg and I.sub.2, repeated sublimation, and zone refining.
